2023: INEC sets dates for election campaign activities

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has established dates for political parties to begin campaigning for the presidential, national assembly, governorship, and state assembly elections ahead of the 2023 general elections. 

On September 28, 2022, the presidential and National Assembly elections will take place, while gubernatorial and state houses of assembly elections will take place on October 12, 2022. 

Hajiya Asmau Sani Maikudi, the Resident Electoral Commissioner of INEC Kaduna, stated this at the first quarter press briefing on the ongoing voter registration.  

The Commissioner added that political parties’ presidential and National Assembly campaigns will end at midnight on February 23, 2023, while gubernatorial and state assembly campaigns will end at midnight on March 9, 2023. 

“It is at the discretion of the National Assembly, Sani said of allowing convicts to vote in the 2023 elections. If it becomes legislation, INEC would have no choice but to execute it, and persons in penal facilities will be permitted to vote after it is enacted by the National Assembly.”
